River Bluff overlooking Knoxville

Lets (hopefully) celebrate some warmer weather with a walk at the River Bluff property, off Cherokee Trail near Cherokee Bluffs. There is a gravel road we will walk with the dogs, to the overlook with a great view of Knoxville. Then we will backtrack through the woods on the gravel road, down to a pond, around it, and then back up to the gravel road back to our cars. This is rolling woods, with some steeper sections. Should be fun to watch the dogs run and look for squirrels.
Directions- Take Cherokee Trail from Alcoa Highway, pass the hospital and student apartments. Turn LEFT into the gravel parking lot directly across from the Giant Blue KUB water tower. If you pass the water tower, turn around in the parking lot of High Ground park.
If anyone wants, we can check out the lovely new walking trails of High Ground park afterwards.

    Luna and I had a wonderful time and it was a great hike where we both really felt like we'd had some exercise! Very nice group of people and dogs - can't wait for the next one!

    Walter and I enjoyed the walk. Beautiful day. Now it's time to give him a shower. Phew! He gets the award for finding the stinkiest stuff to roll on his coat.

    Ah, I just got back from a motorcycle ride. I fear I am too late to join to day... Sorry guys, the mountains were calling.

    it is such a gorgeous day! I hope you all have a wonderful time! I wish I could meet you all but school is so unforgiving when it starts back. Maida and I will at least get out and walk close to home for a short time :)

    There were a few soggy spots when Walter and I walked yesterday, so rubber boots may be helpful. Hopefully they will dry out soon. Looks like a great day to be outside!

    Looks like the weather will be great for the walk! I am looking forward to learning more about this area, I pass it up twice a day x 5! Daysi will be extremely happy (loud) to see old friends and meet new ones! :-)
